Eke Ifeanyichukwu Emmanuel emerged the 2015/2016 best graduating student of University of Nigeria, with a CGPA of 4.83. In an interview with Vanguard, when asked about the challenges he passed through while in school, he said: “I had a whole lot of challenges. 

.

.

One of them was financial challenge. I am from a very humble background. We reside in Aba. I remember in my first and second years, I used to drink garri (cassava flakes) and eat Fibre active biscuit. It was a daily ration to me. I also used ropes as belts as a student. 

.

.

I remember then, I had few clothes. No shoes to where, only slippers. Having money to pay my fees was an issue. I stayed in the hostel from first year till I graduated. In my first year, I was having an eye challenge. Then, I would be seated in front of the classroom. 

.

.

Yet, I would not see what was written on the board. No money to go to the hospital for check up talk less of getting glasses. I had a D in a three unit load first year course. It was a motivational factor that spurred me into reading more.”
